80 years is not a long time, we should make the most of it


I am an Australian who has been living in Europe for the past decade. Over that time I have been exploring the world from greatest cities to the highest mountains yet I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface.

This website is dedicated to sharing those adventures.

Along with travelling to popular holiday destinations and major cities I also love the outdoors and regularly feel the need to get off the beaten track. Being an amateur mountaineer, I am currently working my way through climbing ‘The Seven Summits’, which is the highest mountain on each continent. I have some great expeditions behind me and even greater ones ahead! When I am not climbing mountains I get my outdoor fix paragliding, trekking and stand up paddle-boarding.

Along with adventure, I have an interest in photography. My friends and family have always said to me ‘You should do something with your photos’ so I decided to finally create this blog to share my photography and experiences.

This site is still in BETA. Initially it will cover my 2017 Everest expedition and some previous climbs including Everest 2015. There is much more to come but for the time being, all focus is on Everest 2017.

Take a look around, I hope you enjoy. If you have any questions, leave a comment on one of my posts of fill in that form below.
